My family ended up moving to Lee’s Summit, MO when our wife was gave a immense job promotion. The new position promised a significant raise in pay! While I agreed it was a enjoyable chance for him to transport up in the contractor and I was entirely gleeful about having more currency, I wasn’t overly glad with the plan of relocating, but coming from the south, I was distraught about the dire winters in MO, then i’d heard that the crime rate was especially high. I’d never even visited the Midwest before. I decided to do some research before packing up and selling our house down south. I looked into Lee’s Summit and was surprised by the scenic landscape and proximity to national parks and freshwater beaches. I had not known that MO was called “the Prairie State” and certainly has the third largest GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in the country! The state offers a honestly diversified economy and offers greater job prospects and usual of living than a lot of other areas of the country. It shouldn’t have come as a surprise that our wife’s contractor asked him to relocate to Lee’s Summit because MO is a center for trade and commerce. There’s over 35 Fortune500 companies based there. The MO unemployment rate is 4.8%, which is far lower than the national average; Also, the cost of living isn’t overly high, housing is relatively incostly, allowing us to purchase a much greater, nicer and newer beach house than the two of us were living in down south. The cost of groceries is even lower than what the two of us were accustomed to.
